Baars made placing fascine mattrasses a lot easier

‘Evides Waterbedrijf’ has already given us the opportunity to supply a jack-up6’ for the construction of new water pipelines for its project. Now our modular pontoons have also been used for the project. This time, we were able to provide support with the application of fascine mattrasses to the bottom of the De Gijster reservoir. We were asked to provide pontoons not to pollute the water unnecessarily. Of course we arranged that!

Modular Barges with a safe coating
The ‘Gijster’ reservoir provides the drinking water supply for the Rotterdam region. It is supplied with water from the Meuse, so that the water level is always maintained. At the point where the supply pipelines enter the reservoir, fascine mattrasses were to be applied to keep the soil stable. Our modular pontoons were used for this, but not before we had applied a safe coating to them. In this way, we ensured that the water was not unnecessarily polluted. Important, because the water in the reservoir is pumped after a natural pre-purification process to different locations where it is purified into drinking or industrial water for the region.

Why Baars modular barges?
For this project, we supplied a modular crane barge with spud poles, which could be used to load and unload quarry stone onto the water. In addition, we supplied a modular fascine laying mattrasses barge, on which a zinc beam was placed to place the fascine mattrasses on the bottom.  These modular container pontoons are ideal for isolated or enclosed waters. They can be placed in the water by crane from the truck. In addition, we can extend the barges to meet special requests. In this case, this was a safe coating, but we will always find a suitable solution for your project as well. It’s not for nothing that we say: ‘our creativity, your solution!
